Homemade Bath Bombs


Bath bombs are compact, medium colored balls that are made from dry and wet ingredients in preset proportions. Its texture is smooth and as soon as they come into contact with water they disintegrate and begin to generate a very pleasant foam for the skin. In addition, an exquisite aroma is given off.

Homemade versions of bath bombs can come in different shapes, colors, and sizes, though not necessarily spheres like commercial ones. On the other hand, one of the advantages of making them at home is that we can incorporate aromatic essences and oils that we like the most.
